SPARTANBURG, S.C. (AP) - Three people have been arrested in the death of a South Carolina teen who was gunned down inside a vacant home.

The Spartanburg Herald-Journal reports 26-year-old Jacory Foster, Derrick Lamar Bennett Jr. and a 17-year-old girl are charged with murder, armed robbery and possession of a weapon during a violent crime in the Monday shooting death of 19-year-old Kiyounnie Jackson.

Spartanburg police say Union County sheriff’s deputies arrested the suspects Wednesday.

Police are still investigating a motive.

Foster and the 17-year-old were arraigned Thursday. It’s unclear if Foster and Bennett have lawyers. The 17-year-old said she didn’t know what she planned to do about an attorney.
